Dead Fly

A dead fly on my windowsill. He looks so poetic and, well, dead. I don't know why I took this photo. I liked the lighting this afternoon--not bright, much more still and fading. Very moody.

Moody enough to warrant an arty pic of a dead fly.

I forgot about the photos I took when I went on a thrifting adventure over in Pt. Townsend on my birthday last week. I packed a lunch and ate it up at the Fort Worden bunkers (a maze of vast military bunkers built for WWII--but by the time they were completed, the war was over, so they've never been really used much) which are so fun to get lost hiking around. Anyway, these were my favorite pics from that day (I have a thing with rusty objects--I *love* photographing rusty doors).
And, completely off-topic but worth bringing up, have you guys checked out the Robot Chicken Star Wars special? If not, and you like parodies/Star Wars/cartoons, get yourself over to adultswim and watch it! As you know, I'm a big Star Wars geek, so I practically had milk spilling out my nose while viewing it.

Huh. I took a picture of a dead fly today and spent 30 mins watching a Star Wars parody cartoon. Apparently, I have no life.
Happy trails for all you kiddos this weekend! I hope you all get to do something exciting!

**Printer and print-making update: I got the big box of neato kraftboard envelopes and baggage today to mail out prints in! The printer is nearly here! Weeee! And, I'm pondering the thought of maybe, just maybe, doing a drawing/lottery on my blog for a few freebie 5x7" prints or something--just to get the ball rolling and such. I'll let ya know if that materializes...
